Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Batteries, among various energy storage systems, have garnered attention not only in stationary applications but also in a wide range of mobile applications, spanning from small devices such as smartphones, notebooks, and tablets to larger ones such as electric vehicles and railway traction systems. Over the years, different technologies, such as lead–acid and lithium–ion, have been developed, and ongoing research explores novel technologies. Enhancing the lifecycle involves exploring innovative technologies in battery construction and/or optimizing their operational conditions. Achieving this requires a profound understanding of battery modelling and parameter estimation. Battery modelling can encompass various aspects, including chemical, electrical, thermal, or aging factors, or a combination of these. These models can be implemented in battery management systems, which can properly control the battery operating conditions, ensuring batteries work inside their safe and optimal operating range, limit their degradation, and increase their performance. In particular, the management of the thermal aspect of batteries is crucial for preventing overtemperatures, limiting temperature degradation and possible consequent thermal runaway. The latter can be very dangerous as it can lead to combustion and explosions. Moreover, the thermal battery management system can be useful for balancing the temperature among different battery cells or modules. This way, it is possible to equalize the thermal stress among cells/modules, ensuring uniform degradation and efficiency of the individual cells/modules.

In light of the above, the scope of this Special Issue is to collect both original research works and review articles on battery models, with a particular focus on the thermal aspect, and their optimized control through battery management systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
